Migrant crossing: 15 people found hiding in rock band’s tour van in hope to sneak into UK

SOME 15 migrants were found hiding in the back of a tour van of the Canadian rock band Sum 41 in Paris on Friday, though all managed to escape, according to French media reports.

The migrants had hoped to be smuggled into the UK, where the van was registered.

Many refuse to be picked up by French police for fear of being returned to mainland Europe.

Upon hearing a commotion in the back of the van, the driver, whose vehicle was registered in the UK, called over a security guard to investigate the noise, the news channel BFMTV said. 

The two men opened the van’s back doors and saw about 15 people of “North African appearance” hiding inside. All managed to escape on foot.
